Our investigations of Latin verbs have been most interesting! We have uncovered many twin bases which helped us understand the difference in spelling when looking at word pairs like:
produce / production
consume / consumption
describe / description
invade / invasion
respond / response
But then again, we have also uncovered many twin bases which helped us understand the meaning connections when looking at word pairs like:
lava / lotion
obstruction / misconstrue
frangible / infraction
individual / visage
If we go with the analogy in which words that share a base are like members of a family, then the following pictures offer proof that the fifth graders in our school live in a wonderfully diverse neighborhood!
Here are three more films in which students share their Latin Verb investigations. The first is a combination of what two groups found out about the Latin Verb Duco Ducere Duxi Ductus.
This group looked at Frango Frangere Fregi Fractus.
The following two groups investigated Scribo Scribere Scripsi Scriptus.
